 Good thinking -- and indeed, it does. At this point, nobody but mkisofs 
 should have its hand on the innocent 
 - and

 sounds like a reasonable assumption.

 When I drop '--macbin' from the mkisofs invocation, the latter runs to 
 completion. I'll have to burn a CDROM to see what a real Mac makes of 
 the result.
 The man page is terse on this ("Look for MacBinary Macintosh files"); 
 the code is convoluted, but appears to set type and creator for 
 macbinary files - which would change files written to the image, and 
 mkisofs may well trip over its own shoelaces here.
 If all that is lost is the proper hfs type for macbinary files, a 
 workaround could be to drop --macbin, and add a note to the mac68k 
 specific part of INSTALL that the respective files need to be 
 dragged&dropped onto an unpacker to be accessed.
